Mount Penglai (aka 'Hourai' in Japanese), or Penglai Island, is an island in Chinese mythology. According to the ancient Chinese text Shan Hai Jing ("Anthology of the Mountains and Seas"), written prior to 221 BCE :
"Penglai Mountain stands in the midst of the sea."
Penglai is also mentioned as one of the 5 mythical islands of the Bohai Sea in the Taoist classic Liezi. (attributed to Lie Kou, 5th century BCE.)
The popular legend of "The 8 Immortals Crossing the Ocean" was also set on Penglai Island.
